michael bloomberg endorsed president obama citing his support for the environment. just days before the election, bloomberg announced his decision in an op-ed entitled, "a vote for president, a vote for a president to lead on climate change the." riding -change." he compared the records of obama and mitt romney but he wrote -- bloomberg's endorsement is particularly striking because much of the news media has barely mentioned climate change, even in the lead up or aftermath of the superstorm. there were also no questions addressed to the presidential candidates on climate change in the course of the three presidential debates. also, mayor bloomberg was a republican who turned independent. one of the news outlets that has broken the silence on climate change is the magazine "bloomberg businessweek." the cover story is called, "it's global warming, stupid." to talk more about the issue, we areoined by the author, paul barrett, assistant managing editor at bloomberg businessweek. it is great to see. lay out this article, "it's global warming, stupid." >> good morning. what we've tried
money in this environment. what do you do? is this a buying opportunity? >> not particularly. you have to look at the technical indicators and see where we're going see a breakdown. i would be putting no money to work right new. because of this election, if we see romney elected, we'll see oil prices drop. you'll see energy prices drop. that might be a buying opportunity at that point. other than that, i really believe we have to just take a look and see attitude right now. >> well, one of our guests, a regular on this program, had a great idea. he said to me, maybe for one month the fed instead of putting that $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities buying, put that on hold and send it to some of the ravaged areas like staten island, like new jersey. >> i love it. i absolutely love that idea. >> i do too. >> then the fed's crossing the line into fiscal policy and out of the realm of monetary policy. >> where are we going to get it? >> fema responds rather adroitly to -- katrina notwithstanding, to these disasters. i suspect they're going to be quite responsive right now for those wh
